The EssentialSkillz Data Protection online training outlines the key legislation of Data Protection Acts and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Data protection standards introduce new terminology and new roles within the data protection framework and much tougher fines and penalties for non-compliant organisations.
The Data Protection online training explains the principles of processing (eg specific and legitimate purposes, kept secure, and accurate) and the legal bases for processing (eg consent, legitimate interest or public interest). An understanding of these concepts is necessary for anyone who processes data as part of their work.
The course discusses the improved rights individuals have under GDPR (eg right to be informed, right to object) and how Data Protection applies to employees and their daily tasks.
A scenario-based learning approach is used throughout the course to show how aspects of Data Protection relate to everyday tasks employees might encounter. A variety of quizzes and interactions, such as multiple-choice questions, are used to reinforce learning and engage the learner.
Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Data Protection online training can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation.
